Why is mitosis called equational division?
Analyse the events during every stage of ceil cycle and notice how the following two parameters change.

(ii) amount of DNA content (C) per cell
Name the stage of cell cycle at which one of the following events occur:
(i) Chromosomes are moved to spindle equator
(ii) Centromere splits and chromatids separate
(iii) Pairing between homologous chromosomes takes place
(iv) Crossing over between homologous chromosomes takes place
